Emir of Katsina Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir

The Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumini Kabir, has said that Nigeria will continue to remain one in spite of its multi-ethnic diversity.

Kabir made the statement on Friday at his palace in Katsina, when he addressed leaders of Igbo community and other Nigerians residing in Katsina State.

“I am responding to the quit notice given to some Nigerians residing in the North by some group of people who are enemies of peace. Here in Katsina, I am ready to sacrifice my last drop of blood to ensure peace and protect all Nigerians residing in the state,’’ he said.

The emir urged the different communities residing in the state not to panic as the Emirate Council and state government would take all necessary measures to ensure peaceful coexistence.

“You are Nigerians, because some of you were born here and you don’t have better place than Katsina. So, continue to conduct your lawful business activities, we are behind you. You are my sons and daughters like any other person, Katsina is your home, so, feel free do not go anywhere,” Kabir said.

The emir also urged them to continue to pray for peace and unity in the country, to ensure sustainable development.

    This how it should be done swiftly. Don’t stay mute while people commit atrocities because their lazy ass has refused to work hard and there so called elites have kept them in perpetual poverty. They won’t rise up to people like babangida and abachas its Ibos they want to come and try

    Lasting peace or momentary peace?
    Are we dealing with the issues now or are we postponing for the next generation?

    Well said sir. May Allah bless him. I don’t understand these fools trying to disintegrate a nation….their mates are busy fasting and repenting in the holy month of Ramadan they are looking for trouble. Shame on them. I love my Igbo brothers and sisters. Igbo kwenu! Love always wins.

    smh at the idiots praising this emir..this is why history is very important and should be learned at schools..go and check where the word ” nyammiri” comes from..It was coined in an emir palace before all the igbos taking refuge in the emir palace were slaughtered …any foolish Igbo still staying in the north only has his or herself to blame

      My dear your word is life and not just true, they know their selves, but talk peace to deceive their preys, who so ever that can recall history will be able to tell how many southerners that died of thirsty and starvation while seeking for refuge in the house of the Emir, and this time they are at it again

    @ John you are such a dummy. It is ndigbo like you that give us a bad name. Do you know what the Igbos have invested in the North and Nigeria as a whole? Not all Igbos buy into this Biafra nonsense. After all Ojukwu the so called leader of the Biafra people, when he died his casket was draped with the Nigerian flag not Biafra. Besides you talk about Igbos returning to the East what have you prepared for them to return to?, Easterners should learn to love each other, unite and stand as one people first before you shoot off that your big mouth. Yeye boy.
    May God bless this Emir and his reign. Ezigbo mmadu.

      @Drewon, in the same comment where you noted that Easterners should learn to love each other you also called another big mouth and yeye boy. Well done!
      I like what the Emir said. He should be commended. But the best advice for any Igbo person in the north is: Leave Now.
      I think it is unwise and selfish to talk about investment when and where you’re life is in danger. Unwise because if you get killed your investment becomes nothing to you. Selfish because this is not just about you, it’s about your children and their children and so on. If the Igbos who migrated to the north after the war had used wisdom nobody will be having this conversation today, nobody would have issued an eviction notice.
      I have been to some cities in the north. You see Igbos everywhere. These are cities that are not nearly as beautiful as Enugu. Cities whose businesses and commerce pale beside what goes on in Onitsha, Aba or Nnewi. And I ask myself ‘what exactly are these guys doing here, taking insults, humiliation and loss of lives?’ What? Ofcourse I shouldn’t be asking that question if Nigeria is not the mess that it is – a pool of continual inter-ethnic bloodbath and distrust. After my NYSC I had two offers to stay and work in Kastina or Funtua but I rejected them.
      Even if Biafra is not realized, even if some leaders in the north promise peace, even if nothing happens after October 1st, an Igbo person in a community of Hausa/Fulanis is putting his/her life at risk.
      The Emir did well but the Igbos can do better by leaving that region. It doesn’t make sense to talk about investment. Before the pogrom of 1966 Igbos had investments in the north. But when the massacre started nobody remembered any investment. If your property is worth N2m please sell it for N1m and depart. The government has demonstrated over time that it cannot guarantee the safety of lives and property of its citizens.
      The words of the emir are nice but he is in the minority. You’re not welcome. Period. Please leave. Nawa oh. They accuse of being fraudulent, domineering, wanting to take over, being responsible for every evil in their community and Nigeria as a whole; and they are eager to kill and do kill some of you on a whim, yet you’re stuck up there, even when you have been warned in advance and those who issued the threats are walking freely, visiting markets where machetes are sold. I just don’t understand. Maybe genuine Igbo leaders or Kanu ( since he has sizeable following) should call for prayers for Igbos bent on ending their lives in the north, because this doesn’t look ordinary to me.
